A little news to brighten your day. The Fourth International Colour in Film Conference is coming soon, 25-27 February in fact, and once again it will be held in London at the BFI Southbank. You’re in good time to register now, so get cracking.
The Fourth International Conference ‘Colour in Film’ will be held in London from February 25-27, 2019, organized by the Colour Group (GB), HTW Berlin and the University of Zurich, in cooperation with the BFI.
The event will include screenings, keynote lectures and presentations from international film and colour scholars, in the BFI’s NFT2 theatre. Details of the program will be announced as they emerge – follow us on Facebook for updates!
The lineup for the three-day conference covers a broad spectrum (geddit?) of areas. On the first day, Tom Gunning will give a keynote lecture on ‘Projected Cinema Colours: Transparency, Light and Space’, and David H Foster, Professor of Vision Systems, University of Manchester, will give the Colour Group Keynote the following day. There will also be papers on colour comedy, early fashion films, and the 1950s colour wars. There will be a session focusing on two-colour formats and plenty more on the nitty-gritty of colour restoration, conservation and preservation.
